Mike's Open

"Good afternoon folks. Beautiful Wednesday afternooon. This is Mike'd Up, Francesa on the Fan. Evan Roberts joining me again today. We'll let Evan get a word in later in the hour. But folks. I told you this day was coming. Everyone laughed at me. Called the guy a cancer. Boston won't even acknowledge him. But here it is today: The Red Sox now rue the day they traded Manny. I told ya this would happen folks. You can't replace a Manny Ramirez. You can't replace what a guy like that means in a big spot. I told you that they would rue the day they traded him and the past two games, Boston has missed Manny. Jason Bay's a nice player, but he's not Manny. And that's the point folks - no one is Manny. You just can't replace that production and what that bat means to a lineup. You think David Ortiz isn't missing Manny? Go ask him. Theo couldn't get rid of him fast enough and now that decision is going to haunt them. Manny's presence means everything to a team. And now you're seeing a Red Sox team coming up tight in a big spot. I tell ya what. This is going to define Theo's legacy. Just like Belichick never won a thing without Brady, now we are going to see if the great Theo can ever win without Manny. I'll say it again - listen real closely up in Boston: The Red Sox now rue the day that they traded Manny."

Someone should tell Mike that the ALCS ratings are up 80% from last year for men ages 18 - 35;

and up 40% overall.

I know i ve not been around this blog in a while, but im not dead. But i finally get some time to listen to Hyped Up, Fatcesa on the WFAN and i come back to hear about his fucking non-existent jingle.. I do like Evan though hes not bad..But in the first five minutes of this show, i already know its entire premise..The Sox miss Manny, which i do agree w/ and are happy that they do miss him. Talk about how they are down 3-1 just like the Red Sox, but wont say anything bad about Torre or the Dodgahs..

Mike is such an asshole...and Evan is handing it to him. Mike DOES hate the Mets. Mike was saying the past week that "the Red Sox are the new Yankees" - and now attacks Evan on that point. Mike also was about to pull the age card - started off saying "why do we need you, a 25 yr old Met fan, to tell us...."

It ALL comes back to Mike and his attempted trade of Wright. Mike sounds a bit defensive in this first segment actually. Good for Evan

What the fuck is wrong with Mike? How do you think you can go out and trade for a special without changing the Met core..

Someone just called up and ripping Mike for his vendetta..Was that someone from this blog..

Wow Evan is getting fired up and coming back at Mike...Lets go Evan! Although he is about to lose his job at WFAN cuz he argued on air on with Mike...Remind you of something!

Yeah this is getting good. People ganging up on Mike. Mike is absurd with this argument. Apparently now Don Zimmer is the end all be all of baseball knowledge - YET he doesn't believe in looking at averages.

Evan Longoria is nasty - but this is just typical of someone who is struggling in an argument. he's throwing out all these different names to try and squirm his way out of getting this argument wrong.

Youkilis, Pujols, Halladay, now Longoria...This is ugly.

Mike is now just trying to bully Evan and callers out of this argument.

A veiled shot at young people by Mike- "Oh now you wanna play fantasy baseball?"

TheNextBestThing1 said...

Yea the hell with that, i love fantasy baseball, it made me a bigger baseball fan..We should start a fantasy baseball league for this blog..i ll set it up if u guys want!

I love to hear someone giving Mike shit, but Evan is constantly manufacturing arguments. He does it with Benigno too. At times it's more interesting than listening to two guys agree with each other, but most of the time it just seems forced.

WOW, Mike from Montclair, deserves some serious kudos..He just called and slammed Fatcesa..He all of people surprised me with the call. He constantly would call up to kiss mike's ass. Just told mike i dont need to listen to crap, and he is getting his subscription to Sirius for his 50th birthday. Mike from Montclair says he d listen to evan and joe, and Mike goes im still here. What an ego maniac. Now you can tell Mike is pissed cuz now he is still on this Mike from Montclair call five minutes later. Now he wants to rip him for being a frustrated talk show host.. Now Mike, just said he would never let a caller join him, what the Fuck was the fiasco at BAR A then you fat bastard...

One Important Exchange:

Mike F: You would run into do a show with me if i asked you to come in tomorrow."

Mike M: Im not so sure about that Mike."

Fatcesa had his feelings hurt..Great call!

Really aggressive Mike against Evan via the Mets / your only 25 this morning. Hard to listen to. Mikey playing it up for his angry fat fifty yr old Reagan Democrat demography or Yankee fans.

Its like watching those Ohioans calling Obama supporters Commie Fags.
